Kawasaki Motors Australia are helping the next generation of Aussie motorcycle apprentices with their latest donation of a 2015 Kawasaki Ninja 300 to TAFE NSW – Sydney Institute for vocational training.

The donation is one of many that Kawasaki Motors Australia have contributed to various TAFE institutes around Australia.

Technical Service Department Assistant Manager at Kawasaki Motors Australia, Jeremy Fuller, says they have developed a strong relationship with TAFE through product donation and support over the years.

“We aim to provide the latest products and diagnostic service tools so that apprentice technicians can benefit from learning on modern machinery as opposed to dated products,” he says.

Kawasaki have also trained several teachers on diagnostic training on Kawasaki products.

Head Teacher of Automotive Technology at TAFE Sydney, Peter Denison, welcomed the donation.

“It means that our students get the latest and greatest to learn on, which is a benefit to us and to Kawasaki owners as well,” he said.

TAFE motorcycle teacher Paul Sampieri said the bikes made their training relevant and current with industry standards.

“We will pull down the engine and inspect it and use the diagnostic tools provided by Kawasaki to work with this Ninja 300 as a learning resource, more specifically a late-model fuel-injection training aid,” he said.
